Salt Wilier nubbin A Hint to .lieu of Honor Or a Hurl in Style. The practice of fighting ut'l with sword ami pistol, as carried on so exten sively at the South ami West in the pre sent day, when we boast of having made a rapid" progress in civilization, is a poor and unprofitable business, to say the least and sometimes a dangerous one into the bargain. It is an unpleasant thing, sure ly, to a kind and benevolent man, to be compelled by the laws of honor, to turn a deaf car to the whisperings of conscience and benevolence, and strive to kill a re spectable man, a good citizen nay more, perhaps a neighbor or a friend anil some would consider it a still more unpleasant thing to receive, while in the full enjoy ment of health, social comforts, and do mestic happiness, a bullet in his thorax, or a small sword or a bowie knife through the diaphragm. Hut as long as "honora ble men" conceive themselves bound to fight their neighbors and friends with such murderous weapons, on slight provoca tions, so long, it may reasonably be ex pected, will duelling be attended with such disagreeable, snch disgusting results. I have never fought a duel, and I think it highly probable I never shall fight one. My reasons arc briefly these: Firstly I have an instinctive repugnance to expo sing my own precious person where the chances are equal that I may receive my quietus by a lump of lead, impelled by gunpowder. Secondly My life, I have reason to believe, is necessary to the com fort and happiness of others consequent ly I have no right to peril it in this way, without the consent of the others a con sent which I have the vanity to think can not be obtained. Thirdly Duelling is a savage custom, unworthy of the present age and it is the duty of every man who has any pretensions to civilization or re finement, to exert all his influence, by precept and example, to set the seal of public odium upon this barbarous prac tice, which had its origin in the dark ages, and, Fourthly Duelling is a practice directly opposed to the laws of man and the laws of God. It is therefore extreme ly unlike that I shall ever seek satisfac tion fr an insult by standing up in fair combat, and shooting mv antagonist through the head," or courting a favor of tus description lrom mm. It may be unreasonable to suppose that the high-spirited citizens of the South and West will ever relinquish this absurd custom of duelling because "they are honorable men" and none but honora ble men fight duels. The most wc can expect is, that they will submit to some qualification of the present rules of honor, and perhaps agree to substitute some other means of deciding who is the "better man," than those which are furnished by gunpowder and lead and steel. I recol lect of hearing some years ago of a mode of settling a dispute on shipboard, where both the combatants were "men of hon or" and the duel was fought with un military weapons without actual danger to lite, and yet was conducted in a man r.ei which satisfactorily- established the intrepidity and viudicliveness of both the combatants, and was attended with a r suit which would probably satisfy the most tenacious and chokric man of honor Such being the effect of the experiment, I would most respectfully recommend its adoption by all men who feel any dispo sition to settle honorable disputes with honorable warfare. I believe that all men will admit that the plan adopted on this occasion, is far better calculated to give satisfaction, than to cut one other's throats, or t shoot one another through the head and in making it known, I conceive that Hawser Martingale is enti tied to lh.) thanks of a philanthropic com inanity. Oil board the ship Micomacon, of Pro- vidence, R. I., there was a chap, a tho rough gentleman, by the wav, name Jim Peacock. How Jim ever came be fore the mast, it is impossible to tell, as he prided himself much on the respect; bility of his connections, and often talked for a whole 'dog watch about the property which he expected shortly to inherit. His wardrobe was somewhat limited to be sure ; notwithstanding which, by means of a high shirt collar, bushy whiskers, curling lovelocks, a second-handed and thread-bare coatee, and an ivory-headed switch, he continued to cut quite a dash whenever he went ashore in a foreign court, and to sport the air and manners of a thorough-bred gentleman. Indeed, he was so neat and trim in his dress whene ver he went ashore, altho' he was care less enough of these things on board, that the ship's company nick-named him "Dandy Jim." Now Dandy Jim, notwithstanding he Was so much of a gentleman, was the laziest fellow on board, and could play the old soldier in a style that would havo done credit to "a waister in a man of war. He was fond of good eating, too and on the passage out was, always hangirig about the galley, with a view to Jicg from the cook or steward, or steal , some delicacy, whieli was denied - the ' "foremast hands." He was soon cured of this foible, however, by the cook, who one day, while he was bearing off somi'' spoils' which he had filched, in thej shape of a" couple of ' foiled cgst ' threw into his - ", a, P3"1'" of boili,,, . watwv.iwW.-i ,H? 10 T0r like llnetT" crfiiYi'.v.. t0 hi,gty whiskers, which gave his phiz a queer appearance. One day it was old Hen Gangway's turn at the wheel during dinner ; and one of Hen's watehmatcs, as in dutv bound, ut ofl "dull" and set it aside for Hen. Then they all turned to on the remainder with a will, and it was soon demolished. n due time Hen w as relieved, and came forward as hungry as a tiger anticipating an excellent dinner but it then appeared that the portion which had been saved for lim and carefully set aside, had most un accountably disappeared and poor Hen angway was obliged to go without din ner, or resort to the expedient of the North American bear in the winter time, and suck lis paws. Hut Hen, although a good sai or and an honest man, was no philoso )hcr, and did not submit with resignation to his hungry fate, lie grumbled a good deal, and by dint of close enquiries and ircumstantial evidence, he convinced limself and the whole ship's company, that Dandy Jim had feloniously obtained possession ol his prog, and had, without so mucli as saying, "oy your leave, disposed of it for his own comfort and advantage. On learning this, Hen's indignation was very great lor there are lew tilings more annoying, or belter calculated to dis- htrb the equanimity of one's temper, than to be robbed of a dinnerespecially if particularly hungry as, unfortunately for Jim, happened to bf the case with Hen. lie was not a man of many words. tut what he did say was generally to the point. He merely called Jim a gooil-lor-nothing, lazy, gluttonous rascal, who was not worth his suit, and no sailor. He then seized him by the ears, and seemed for a few moments .resolved to try if he could lengthen them by pulling. The experiment was probably unsatisfactory, lor he let go his hold of them in a few moments, and with the flat of his hand he give Dandy Jim a blow, such as the French call a xovjlct, which caused Jim to hear a strange medley of confused sounds, and sent him reeling against the windlass-bitts. Such unceremonious and uncivil treat ment displeased Jim very much all his gentle blood was roused within him. lie looked death and defiance at Hen and assured him on his honor that he should not put up with such an insult with impu nity, "but, said he, "I will not light you with fists, but with noble weapons with weapons such as only gentlemen use. And I now demand satisfaction for the insult you have put upon me an insult which no man of honor can brook and challenge you to single combat Hen cooly told him that he would light him, cither as a gentleman or a black guard, at any place, or at any time, with any weapons which he might select that it was equally indifferent to him whether the weapons were lists, marlinspikes, jack nives, heavers, capstan bars, handspikes, or cooks tormcnters that he was ready to fight him with any weapon ever invent ed to take the life ol man, from a sail needle down to a howitzer. Such a determined and gentlemanly spirit on the part of Hen Gangway, who was one ol tlie roughest looking speci mens of manhood that ever put two ends ol a rope together, was altogether unexpected by Dandy Jim and there is no knowing what course the matter Height have taken, if Cantain Shcavchoh had not listened to the dispute, and being a dear lovct of fun, and familiar with all the laws of honor, had not interfered, and, having just read the works of a distinguished Scotch novelist, suggested an expedient which met with the hearty approval of both combatants. He told them that as both were gentlemen of unblemished honor, and desirous of act ing in this affair as became honorable men, the proper course for them to adopt was to fight pistol, rifle or sword. "Now," said he, "there are none of these weapons on board except such as belong to me and although 1 should be happy to oblige von, it might not be deemed proper by others, especially those who know nothing about the code of honor, that I should fur nish you with weapons with which to murder each other. Hut as it is absolutely necessary that this business should be set tled as soon as possible, I would suggest that each of you gentlemen should arm himself with a capacious pipe and I have some fine ones in the cabin, which I will loan you with pleasure for this purpose charge them to the muzzle with brimstone and asafietida, retire to some close and secluded, nook in the forecastle or half deck, and then, seated on blocks of wood, or on sea chests, face each other manfully and puff away in each other's faces ; and whoever first funk a out shall be regarded as vanquished and defunct a victim on tin: -paI of honor. This proposition was made with a grave face ; and as it precluded the possibility of shedding blood, Dandy Jim listened to it eagerly, and assented to it with unequivo cal marks of approbation. Hen Gangway hardly knew what to make of it, but as he supposed it was a fair way of settling accounts with Jim, he also grumbled a surly assent Seconds were accordingly chosen, and the arrangements were made. The cap tain kindly furnished each of the parties with a pipe, charged lo the very muzzle with brimstone and asafu'tidaand, after a i o id consultation, the cook's galley, ' '.!. - A doors, was selected as the ' flhnl; nnd it was edifying to be ting resole "to do or die," whieli sat on the countenances of these two individuals, as they took their respective sea;.--', and faced each oilier, ready for the tremendous combat. The pipes v. v-ie lighted ; one of the seconds gave the words "Heady one two three Fire ! ' and at it they went. A furious set-to commenced both of the combatants exhibited proofs of a stea dy, determined courage, which, in the field of battle, or in deadly combat, foot to foot, with sword, with spear, or with fire arms, would have won for them everlast ing renown. As the smoke came thicker and faster, they both made hideous grima ces, but neither of them for some time flinched an inch. At length Dandy Jim,' whose olfactory nerves were rather sensi tive, exhibited signs of great distiess. This was perceived by Hen who pulled away more furiously than before. Jim, in spile of all his struggles, could not resist an inclination to cough. His antagonist regarded this exhibition of weakness with a half grin ('twas all he could) of delight, and ungenerously poured in upon him a steady and overpowering (ire, or, more properly speaking, smoke, until the poor fellow fainted on the spot, and fell glori ously on the field of honor ! Hen (J angway, as soon as he could re over himself sufficiently to speak, decla red that he was fully satisfied, and was warmly congratulated by his shipmates. Nevertheless, shortly alter the battle, while Ijc was rinsing Ins mount will: ap- suds, with a convulsive twist ol his wiry features, which gave his face the semblance of a pitch pine knot, he declared in his most emphatic manner, that, whatever might be the consequence, he would never light like a gentleman again !
